Hi Baliphiles!
My g/f and I are heading off to Bali in early December. Was surprised that cost for 7 nights in Bali with Garuda at the Niksoma is $1,384 Aussie. Seems a heck of a lot, may be I'm out of touch. With prices in Bali being so competitive wondering whether doing the 'package deal' from Oz is the best option or to ring and get a rate through the hotel itself and just book the airfare?
Anyone stayed at Niksoma? Looks beautiful. We're looking for a smaller quieter beautiful place (read: no noisy kids or teenagers), no dead but peaceful. Thinking of either doing that or splitting it up to a few days there; Nusa Lembongan (or just a cruise?) and Ubud. I imagined a 8 day trip to Bali to be around $1,000 Aussie.
I cannot wait to get to Bali, the people, the place, the whole experience, can't wait.
Warm wishes
